Texas Approves Drug Tests For Unemployment Benefits


I find it humorous when liberals say this is a violation of their civil rights. What? How? It’s certainly ok to drug test for a job so why not a government check. Their logic escapes me totally. And there is the problem: Putting logic to liberals since they have none.
Check it out:

Workers who lose their jobs would have to clear a drug screening to qualify for unemployment compensation under a proposal approved by the Texas Legislature.

Under current law, employers take out insurance policies to help laid-off workers survive on weekly payments of $62 to $440. Those who are fired for cause, including failing an employer-sponsored drug test, do not qualify.

The changes approved Saturday would require laid-off workers to fill out state questionnaires. Answers considered suspicious would lead to drug tests. Workers who fail would lose their benefits.
